Our clients' people are at the heart of the business and they have a culture of recognition and reward.

All their employees also enjoy a range of benefits regardless of where they are based. Employees get 3 extra days of annual leave in their third year and an extra month of every 5 years. In line with these milestone lengths of service, they also operate a Loyalty Reward program – this is a bonus that is awarded once these milestones are reached. The thinking behind the program is that not only does it recognise and reward commitment and loyalty to the business, but it can also be used to fund the adventures to be had during sabbaticals – this is the main intention and driving force behind the program. Our client wants to give their people extra spending money so that they can truly enjoy their sabbaticals.
